VISIT CANNES 2000
CANNES — Menahem Golan is in Cannes this year with a new company, a new slate of pics and a new attitude.
- “Crime and Punishment,” an adaptation of the Dostoyevsky novel, which Golan calls “the second bestselling book in the world after the Bible.” Vanessa Redgrave, John Hurt and Margot Kidder star. MGM has the domestic on the pic; Golan is selling foreign in Cannes. Pic was shot in Moscow under Golan’s direction.
- “Death Game,” starring Sean Young and Michael Dudikoff from a screenplay by Timothy White. Pic is a take-off on Golan’s successful “Death Wish” series.
- A remake of “M,” with Eric Roberts starring, directed by Jerry Schatzberg.
- “The Wooden Dish,” starring Martin Landau and Sean Young. Pic is based on Edmond Morris’ play about an aging man who is arguing with his family to stay out of a nursing home.
- “Kumite,” a martial arts thriller starring Olivier Grunner.
- “Days of Love,” directed by Eitan Dotan and described as being about “series about youth, sex and a lot of fun.”
